In addition to Thoma Bravo, the financing round was supported by many other giants in the financial sector. These include Counterpoint Global (one of Morgan Stanley’s equity teams), Binance Labs, Avon Ventures, Mirae Asset, Bitstamp, CMS Holdings, B Capital Group, and more.
Figment aims to make the Internet through the use of the Proof of stake Making (PoS) blockchain technology more accessible.

Gabel claimed that recently “tons of skilled engineers” have jumped into the crypto space from traditional software. He revealed that many of these people have joined the Figment team and helped create “an amazing Web3 native company culture.”
Tre Sayle – a partner at Thoma Bravo – also commented on the financing round with the words: “We are very excited to be working with the talented Figment team.” The manager described Figment as a company focused on building the next generation of blockchain -Technology focused that has an entrepreneurial culture.
Other investments targeting Web3
A few days ago, Seven Seven Six (a venture capital company owned by Reddit’s co-founder Alexis Ohanian) joined in Polygon Teamed Up to Launch a $ 200 Million Fund to Help Advance Development in the Web3 Sector. The initiative will support protocols that explore “better ways for people to connect online”.
Regarding the investment, Ohanian said Web3 is still in its infancy and “the most obvious opportunities right now are in games and social media”.
“The initiative will do just that, with a focus on gaming features and social media platforms built on Polygon’s scalable infrastructure. We’ve already seen some of the best product founders in our Portfolio build on Polygon, and I’m excited that Seven Seven Six and Polygon will play a huge role in shaping the new Internet. ”- he added.
